Welcome to Brandenburg Labs

Shaping the future of audio technology

At Brandenburg Labs, we strive to create cutting-edge audio technology that is inspired by how we listen to the world. We make immersive audio for headphones as intuitive as real life, enabling everyone to dive deep into any soundscape.

Therefore, we have developed the perfect lifelike audio experience over headphones. Our technology simulates how sound propagates in the real world, making it indistinguishable from reality. 

Together with our partners, we are working towards achieving a perfect auditory illusion, especially via headphones.

Our company relies on a substantial network and extensive knowledge in the fields of basic and applied research, also based on the expertise of our founder, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karlheinz Brandenburg, best known as co-inventor of mp3.

As a spin-off company of the Technische Universität Ilmenau and the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology, Brandenburg Labs can draw on many years of research in the audio field at these institutions.

Where to meet us next

We are continuously updating our event schedule here, more events for 2024 soon to be announced.

We are attending the 50th DAGA this year, which will be held at the Hannover Congress Center (HCC) from the 18th to the 21st of March 2024. DAGA is a German Annual Conference on Acoustics, focusing on current developments in the field, hosting several participants from all acoustic fields. The Leibniz Universität Hannover organizes this year’s edition.  
We won’t be showcasing our immersive audio demo during this event; however, we are looking forward to attending the event and learning more about the latest trends in our industry. Contact us at info@brandenburg-labs.com if you are attending and would like to connect with us. Learn more.

We are thrilled to announce that Brandenburg Labs will be partaking in this year’s AES 6th International Conference on Audio for Games in Japan, Tokyo. The event will be held at the Senju Campus, Tokyo University of the Arts, from the 27th to the 29th of April 2024.  

The conference is packed with various educational programs for engineers in Gaming, aiming to “explore the fundamental nature of interactive sound expressions that have been passed down from the past and propose innovations that connect the present and future.” 

We will be showcasing the latest version of our lifelike immersive audio demo during the three-day event. If you are interested in listening to our demo and connecting with us, reach out to us via email. Learn more.
